2.5×3.5″ marker on cardstock

When I was a resident artist at a cancer infusion center (offering art activities to patients while they were getting chemo), one of the things I would do is invite patients to make “survivor power cards”—one for themselves and one to leave for another (unknown) patient. That’s what this card hearkens back to for me, in its process, inspiration, and intention. It is a plea, a direction, a hope, an energy, a deep desire.
